If you take a quick walk south from the Hollywood/Western subway station and the CIM Group's underwhelming retail center, you'll notice crews hard at work on a multi-family development at the southeast corner of Western Avenue and Carlton Way. The Killefer Flammang designed Argyle Apartments started construction earlier this year and are expected to bring 40-units of affordable housing to the market by Spring 2014. The $17.5 million project is the work of Gay & Lesbian Elder Housing (GLEH), a non-profit organization which buildings homes for low-income gay seniors (talk about your niche markets). Amenities include a community room, outdoor barbeque grills and a children's play structure. In addition to the conveniently located subway up the street, the Argyle Apartments are located just one block north of the under-construction Target at Sunset and Western. Even more options for an already highly walkable neighborhood.
